I called Loyce and talked to her on the phone twenty to thirty minutes. Simply talking to her on the phone IMMEDIATELY put me at ease. She has the bubbliest personality-so energetic yet calming. When I arrived at her studio, she greeted me with, “Hey Girlie” and a big hug. Then and there, I knew everything was going to be OK. I showed her several pictures and explained what I like about each dress. She came up with an idea of how to create my vision into my perfect dress. She was so patient and really listened. She knows bridal gowns inside and out!. She guided me through the process of choosing the color, fabrics, style, etc. I changed my mind about a few details here and there, but she never complained. I was so stressed out and constantly losing weight, that every time I’d to for a fitting she would had to take the dress in. I really don’t know how she deal with us crazy brides. She stayed up many nights sewing my gown and train as they were 95% sewn by hand. She also created my beautiful veil, 100% sewn by hand...
Loyce Wheatley is phenomenal; she is professional, warm, detail-oriented, financially reasonable, and extremely conscientious about both her product and her customer. In addition, my mother sings her praises! Working with Loyce to create my dream wedding gown was a magical experience. After pouring over hundreds of gowns, I knew exactly what I wanted, and knew that it didn't exist. Loyce brought my vision to life. I showed up with pictures of gowns, pieced together to create a two dimensional picture that Loyce translated into a three dimensional work of art. Loyce's expertise was evident throughout the entire process — beginning to end — from helping me choose a fabric appropriate for my vision and skin tone, to predicting my weight loss in the week leading up to the wedding. Loyce even went out of her way to contact me the day before the wedding to wish me well. That was just priceless.
Every part of our wedding was a fairly tale and it began with you! You were a Godsend. You turned just a dress into MY dress! On our wedding day, I felt like a princess. EVERYONE was talking about this dress! My friends and family who know me so well said this dress was me and my husband loved it too. When I put it on the day of the wedding, I knew it was just perfect! In its original state, the dress did not flatter me, but I knew it had the potential. You actualized that potential. You made the dress more ME than I could have envisioned. You were always right – about what should be tweaked, how it would turn out, what needed to be accentuated - and you were reliable and fun to work with! Thank you for being so organized, cheerful and a great person to get to know. I will always have fond memories of you and Grace Brides when I look back on getting ready for the Big Day!
I knew fairly early on in the process that I was lucky to meet you and have you making my wedding dress for me. But it wasn't until my wedding day that I realized how lucky I was. It was so meaningful to have you there with me getting ready, by my side through the photos, getting ready to walk down the aisle and making sure everything was perfect for my grand entrance. You were by my side every moment I needed help and nowhere to be found when things were going smoothly. You went above and beyond all my expectations and made me feel like a princess in a beautiful dress.
This place is pretty neat for a small boutique store in Korea town galleria. Probably the only interesting place to visit in that place anyhow... and not kidding either... some of these Koreans... I swear... they need to get the fact that not everyone in the world are fresh off the boat Koreans. But enough ranting. This store provides its customers with awesome discounted prices on designer clothing such as Illaria Nistri, ISLLI, and the like. But still the prices are a little high... but I guess you can say that about alot of places. I give 4 stars =P.
As I know, LA Marking and Grading Studio is one of the best grading and marker making place in Downtown LA. Because only a few specialists could handle such as doggy wear to high-end fashion. Most graders even do not know how to grade curvey part of body for daggy wear. Ian, the owner, has definitely superior understanding and sense of proportions for garments. So it makes him to grade proportionally without distorting the original style lines of the design. You will know that you will never need to find other grader and marker.
I want to sincerely thank you for helping to make my wedding so memorable. It all started with the search for my wedding dress and ended with a new friend and so many wonderful memories in between. My mom and I always looked forward to our visits with you and had so much fun talking about the dress, marriage and life in general. Your words of wisdom will stay with me forever and always put a smile on my face when I recall them coming from you.
I would like to say thank you for creating a beautiful and elegant wedding gown that I’m still in love with! I felt like a princess in on my wedding day, especially from the many compliments I received from my guests. I still receive them now when people see my wedding pictures... and I start to brag about you and my Grace experience! I am truly honored to have had you as my wedding gown designer. Thank you, again. You’re awesome, Loyce!
I loved and looked forward to each and every dress fitting. You quickly became a friend and we were so fortunate to share this experience with you. I miss seeing you!! And finally, thank you for making the drive all the way down to Orange County to see me down the aisle. That meant the world to me! I told my mom "Loyce has to be here, it's not the same without her!" And you came!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
